BARACK AND MICHELLE OBAMA
So what is our favorite designer Tracy Reese up to? After seeing Michelle Obama in the floral red and black at the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington we can’t wait to see what she will reveal at New York Fashion Week.
The Spring 2014 shows are underway, so we won’t have to wait too much longer. But in the meantime, Reese has offered up a sneak peek of her forthcoming collection to give us a taste of what we can expect.
So, what kind of FLOTUS-flattering frocks and dynamic designs will Reese be sending down the runway?
According to a press release in the Huffington Post:
Sensuality, energy and optimism with an array of bold, spirited styles infused with Afro-Cuban influences to create an aesthetic full of texture and movement.
One look at Reese’s sketch, highlighting key looks from the line, and you can almost feel the vibrancy and energy of Havana. Pinks, blues, greens and ochre will anchor the modern feminine silhouettes. With the addition of bold prints in gingham, florals and tribal geometrics as well as leather and raffia detailing — Reese promises a collection perfect for “the modern woman who is sexy, assured and contemporary.”
